About Us

Stage2 is Birmingham’s Busiest Youth Theatre, with a 28 year history and reputation for high quality shows, workshops and work experience. We run on Saturdays during Term Time at Millennium Point in Birmingham City Centre. Anyone aged 7-21 can join, with no audition required! Stage2 do at least 3 Productions a year, as well as workshops in not only General Drama, but Offstage Topics (including Technical Theatre training!).

We also have a group specifically for 7 – 10 year olds, Stage1 introducing members to basic drama skills as well as making friends and having fun. We also provide Work Experience in Marketing, Fundraising and Leadership, as well as the chance to gain extra qualifications through doing LAMDA Exams – we pride ourselves on being ‘More Than a Youth Theatre’. Stage2’s number one rule  is that no one is ever left out at any time, we are an all-inclusive company with a reputation for being extremely welcoming and friendly to all.

Summer Schools

Stage2 Summer Schools happen every year at our normal place of residence – we always offer two weeks of Taster sessions (each with a different skill or discipline) to introduce young people to Stage2, Drama & the creative path of learning by getting stuck in!

Taster Weeks

For those who want to try out Stage2 or general/specific drama skills, each day focuses on an important area.The weeks are completely different – why not do both? Suitable for all ages, abilities and levels of experience.

Taster Week 1: Adventure Week
Monday 22nd – Friday 26th  August 2016  

Taster Week 2: Text Week
Monday 29th August – Friday 2nd September 2016

NEXT WEEK: Spoonface Steinberg

Stage2 presents a revival of their 5* production of 2009 –  ‘Superb. The company has been choreographed into a vibrant whole, quite, quite remarkable. In this startling adaptation the child is played, often just a phrase at a time by a host of youngsters. This is an evening of diction that is beautifully spoken, of pauses that are held and held… remarkably achieved by a company that shows discipline beyond its years in a triumph of teamwork.’ Evening Mail.

Suitable for the whole family, there is an inevitable underlying sadness but also a sense of elation and overriding optimism. For Spoonface, autism causes her to see the world through a glass, distantly, everything is an inexplicable and entrancing jumble. This becomes a saving grace as she does not expect life to make sense – she observes her own decline with vivid flashes of detachment and serenity.

‘Everybody is different and that it is quite good indeed and that we should all be happy because to be different is to be who you are.’ Spoonface Steinberg
